Government Industry Overview

The government and defense contractor industry faces a host of challenges.

These include:

      • Compliance with Service Contract Labor Standards

      • Department of Defense (DOD) source selection procedures

      • Cybersecurity requirements

      • Budget uncertainty

      • Provisions of the NDAA and bid protests

In the government and defense contracting industry, compliance related issues are commonplace. With the possibility of administration and party changes happening every two to four years, the rules governing this industry offer additional complexities. Although more compliance issues may arise, it is essential to give attention to the policies that influence government contracting.

The biggest issue facing the traditional model of government contract awards is that the process is wildly outdated. Technology advances rapidly, and in recent history, by the time federal agencies draw up their list of needs and requirements for a request for proposal (RFP), award contracts, and receive the finished product, many months or even years have passed. In some cases by the time the contract is sent out for bid, their needs have changed. This model makes it very difficult for government contractors seeking to work with the defense industry.
